2019 Registration

Registration for 2019 is now open -  a link to the details is on the left.

There won't be an official pre-comp XC clinic this time.

Accomodation & Maps links are the same as last year. Everyone stayed at Riverside - plenty of room & great facilities. It's the comp HQ.

Start making wishes for the weather. Last year was exceptional... we hope not.
